Nigel Farage today defended Donald Trump's decision to re-tweet Britain First insisting the 'liberal elite' had over-reacted.
The ex-Ukip leader used an appearance on the BBC Andrew Marr Show to claim the reaction has been 'out of all proportion' to the offence.
The President's decision to re-tweet three messages from the far right Britain First group has been widely condemned.
The episode has triggered the worst public clashes between US and UK leaders in memory. Prime Minister Theresa May launched a rare direct attack on Mr Trump, branding him 'wrong' for his tweets - prompting a bizarre cross-Atlantic spat.
The row took a turn for the bizarre when Mr Trump attempted to reply directly to Mrs May on Twitter - only to send his message to the wrong Theresa May account.
Other critics even claimed Mr Trump should be arrested when he next visits Britain and for his planned state visit to be cancelled.
Education Secretary Justine Greening added to criticism today, warning any visit by Mr Trump would not be 'positive'.
Mr Farage said today: 'Do I think those tweets were in good taste? Not particularly, no.
'But the point is that the level of outrage from the liberal elite in this country is out of all proportion with what happened here.'
He added: 'Was the story about ISIS throwing people off buildings fake news? No. It wasn't, it was true.'

Donald Trump living rent-free in the minds of Liberals on both sides of the Atlantic.
Nigel was one way f the first to pile on.
There is more to the Presidents tweets on the state of England. Weve been at war with the British twice in our history already.
Yeah, Farage reversed course on that in a hurry.
Nigel can go to hell on this. And Trump should stay clear away from England. They need us a hell of a lot more than we need them.
President Trump shining a light on islam and showing the world the filth we have in our midst. Apparently the truth is very painful to some. Especially to those creating or protecting the filth.
And he endorsed the President’s controversial claim that there were ‘extremists’ on ‘both sides’ of a protest in Charlottesville,
The first day this happened there was jackbooted lockstep Soviet style condemnation with the BBC, the Conservative Party supporting newspapers etc. with Farage being caught in it on Wednesday.
By the second day he got his wind back and took callers on his radio show sympathetic and supportive of Trump on Thursday.
Nigel has a Sunday show that’s already aired and videos of his shows are at the “OrionPrime” account on You Tube.
It’s the Daily Mail — every other adjective is a leftist laden pejorative.
Dennis Prager occasionally reminds his audience that the Left not only doesn’t fight evil, it fights those who do.
The British socialist overlords cant handle the truth.
Alternatively and more likely, the Brits fear retributive attack by Islamic radical idiots for agreeing with Trump
Were the videos fake or real?
If real, Trump did the world a favor by underscoring the violence and cruelty of Islamist terrorists.
If true, then why the hoopla?
FREE BRITAIN NOW
Read the comments at the Daily Mail. UK supporters of Trump and Farage vastly outnumber those opposing them.
Thanks Oshkalaboomboom. Earlier on FR...
Actually want I want to see is Theresa May’s apology to Donald Trump and the rest of the world for condoning horrific and hateful acts.
Initially I thought all the chatter was because the three videos were fake. But they are not.
So by crying out that the videos were retweeted by Trump, Theresa May is condoning the horrific acts of violence perpetrated (apparently by muslims) in the videos.
How come she is not being arrested or thrown out of office for hate speech?
